In 2019, transport is a part of millions of people’s daily lives; whether that’s catching a flight to your next holiday destination, hopping on the commuter train to work in the morning, or getting a taxi home after a night out. But while we all use transport every single day, how much do we really know about it?
Well we set out to find out and share a whole lot more, with our brand new real time calculator which clocks up travel stats by the second to hammer home the reality of how much is going on around the world every day.
For instance, did you know that over 2.7 million passengers fly out of US airports alone every single day?
Or that there is a flight delayed roughly every 3.52 seconds? Considering a flight takes off around the world approximately every 0.7 seconds, that’s not a very good ratio.
With our new real time calculator, you can see flights departing, cruise passengers setting sail, and NY residents hailing their trusty cabs, as and when it happens.
Considering transport’s connection with climate change at the moment, and the global effort to cut down on carbon emissions, it’s interesting to see what the stats are, and where changes can be made to save the environment.
For example, large cruise ships use 80,000 gallons of fuel a day, which is approximately a gallon every 1.08 seconds.
